LibriVox recording of Short Science Fiction Collection Vol. 004.
Science fiction (abbreviated SF or sci-fi with varying punctuation and case) is a broad genre of fiction that often involves sociological and technical speculations based on current or future science or technology. This is a reader-selected collection of short stories, originally published between 1931 and 1962, that entered the US public domain when their copyright was not renewed.

What we really have here is a collection of 10 short Sci Fi stories. It does contain a couple of gems such as "The Repairman" and "The Missing Battleship" by Harry Harrison but I found most of the other stories rather poor fair.
This is not a fault of the readers, I just found most of the stories rather uninspiring. These collections generally suffer from a lack of consistency. Collection books need to have a theme in order to shine. The stories in this collection are so varied and disparate that you cant really "get into it".
